Don't try to save a few bucks, it's not worth it in the long run. I figure my life is riding on that one tire. I go cheap on a lot of things I buy, my motorcycle tire is NOT one of them.

New rear tire cost over 2 grand and a months labor

Well I made up my mind...
Tear the bike down do Progressive new EVOLUTION in motorcycle led design
But use my buddies bike as a test bed first... lol Then while its tore down may as well send tins and fairing off to get a Custom paint job here's a rendering my buddy did Im sure it will change like the Texas weather... Oh BTW Metzeler ME 888 from Summit it said 4 day del.. but now Dec 5th it will ship but plenty to do till then
